"It's very simple: if you love, you give”.
It has been known that when we put our full potential into action, great things, like magic, happen; the same way when a woman creates a universe around her, simply through her love and her existence.
This is the case of Abhaidev Kaur Khalsa, who with deep devotion and reverence, and with the support of some people who believed in what she does, has managed to bring the Fundación Social Amar Das to life in less than two years.
The Foundation has been operating in and around Santiago, Chile since 2019 and aims to support vulnerable people. One of its current main programs is to bring healthy and nutritious food to homeless people and families who need it.
It is composed, as stated on its website, of a team full of love and good will. It used to average 35 volunteers at one point, but due to the social outbreak in Chile and later the arrival of the pandemic, most of them withdrew from the project.
However, as Abhaidev herself tells us, "In these times of pandemic, when there is so much need, that is when the service is most needed."
So they did not stop their work; on the contrary, they tripled it.
With all the legally required care and permissions, with constancy, care and excellence, they continue in service bringing food made with love to where their arms reach, and we would say even further.
We invite you to watch the interview where we talked about her wonderful service experience and how she created the Fundación Social Amar Das.
"When you humbly realize that you are a means, a link, of a higher chain, when you truly surrender to the process, it is amazing to see the extent of the universe.
And you simply have to step back, leave your heart open, and things happen.
It's not about the question: how, when, where, because there's no point. Just keep going.
To serve is a blessing, to understand that it is a blessing, and that it goes beyond human existence. Therefore, service is the most beautiful thing that can happen to us as human beings on this planet earth.
Everything else comes and goes."
Currently, the foundation is stably made up of four people who, together with Abhaidev Kaur Khalsa, form the team and run five programs in development:
- HOMELESS PEOPLE
Bringing food prepared by themselves.
- LIFE QUALITY AND HEALTH
Offering and openly sharing tools that provide well-being, such as:
- Meditation through Zoom
- Sound Therapy
- CELEBRATING TOGETHER
Program in which they go to vulnerable locations to celebrate special dates with the communities, such as Mother's Day, Children's Day, and others.
- WE'RE WITH YOU
Bringing food to the elderly in times of pandemic.
- SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE
Program for volunteers.
